Squash Painting in Progress



This is a 16 x 20 painting that incorporates some of the squash that I had painted individually on a smaller scale. Since it won't be done as quickly as my small paintings, I thought I would post in-progress pictures.

Here I've toned the entire surface with burnt sienna, and have put some basic color on all the squashes. I normally work over the entire painting, but I'm concentrating on the squash themselves because some of them are starting to deteriorate and I want to get them done before they're unrecognizable.
